Apple iPad Pro With 4K Display Now In Development By Foxconn

Apple iPad Pro With 4K Display Now In Development By Foxconn | EMSinsider Medical Device Electronics | Scoop.it

 

When Tim Cook says Apple has "Big Plans" for 2014, perhaps what consumers can look forward to is the high resolution in their new products.


According to latest rumors, Apple will be producing the "iPad Pro" with a 4K Retina display.

There are reports coming from supply chains in China claiming that Foxconn has already display a model for the 12.9-inch 2K iPad Pro, and is currently developing the 4K model and the display resolution could be 4096x3072 pixels.

If we were to ask the more essential question: Other than watching high resolution movies, what would you do with an insanely high resolution iPad?

Well, Duke University researchers are developing a 1 billion pixel camera that would capture photos with incredible details.

Other than that, with breakthroughs in medical imaging and virtual 3D models, the high resolution just might be useful in such 'Pro' situations.

Circuit Scribe mixes art with electronics | GizMag.com

Circuit Scribe mixes art with electronics | GizMag.com | EMSinsider Medical Device Electronics | Scoop.it

A new company called Electroninks is seeking to make DIY electronics child’s play ... literally. Circuit Scribe is a roller-ball pen filled with conductive silver ink that enables the creation of circuits by simply drawing them.

 

The circuit-drawing pen first caught our attention back in 2011 during its research phase at the University of Illinois’ research lab of Professor Jennifer Lewis. Now Lewis, along with reactive silver ink wizard Brett Walker, has co-founded a company called Electroninks to produce and market the Circuit Scribe.

 

The pair wants to offer a simpler, less messy and more fun alternative to breadboards used to build circuits. All that is required is a coin battery, paper clip, and LED. By using the pen to draw lines with the silver ink, anyone can create functioning circuits. The more technically-minded can resort to a larger number of components to make more complex circuits. Electroninks says Circuit Scribe is compatible with several electronic platforms such as the open source Arduino and the invention kit Makey Makey.

iPhone maker Foxconn Technology Group to invest $40M in Pennsylvania | Tribune-Review.com

iPhone maker Foxconn Technology Group to invest $40M in Pennsylvania | Tribune-Review.com | EMSinsider Medical Device Electronics | Scoop.it

 

Foxconn Technology Group, the Taipei-based maker of Apple Inc.'s iPhone and iPad, said on Thursday it plans to invest $40 million in facilities in Pennsylvania.

 

Foxconn flagship company Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. intends to invest $30 million in high-technology manufacturing for goods including telecommunications components and $10 million for research on robotics at Carnegie Mellon University. C. Alan Walker, Pennsylvania's secretary of Community and Economic Development, made the announcement during an event in Washington.

 

“We're very pleased that companies from overseas are looking to grow in Pennsylvania,” Walker said.

 

As the maker of some of America's most popular consumer electronics devices, Foxconn, which has sprawling manufacturing operations in China, has become a symbol of U.S. outsourcing. Apple, of Cupertino, Calif., is its largest client.

 

Foxconn, a major supplier to Hewlett-Packard Co., said in December that it's seeking to expand North American operations as customers request more of their products be domestically made. Foxconn has 1.6 million workers globally, including factories in California and Texas that make partially assembled products such as servers, said Louis Woo, a company spokesman.

 

Terry Gou, the billionaire chairman of Foxconn, will sign a memorandum of understanding with Pennsylvania, Walker said. Gou was part of a high-profile delegation of business leaders from Taiwan visiting the United States.

Medical devices that become obsolete against a smartphone

Medical devices that become obsolete against a smartphone | EMSinsider Medical Device Electronics | Scoop.it

We have already looked at how a mobile phone can be used as a tool for helping and monitoring people with certain medical conditions (like for example diabetes patients or people with reduced eyesight), but more and more apps and accessories are appearing in the mHealth field, which make use of the features of smartphones in order to replace other traditional medical devices.

 

The advantage of this type of services and tools is obvious: a considerable cost reduction for medical devices, which not only allows anybody to obtain such devices to monitor a patient at home, but it also makes it less difficult to provide them in developing countries, regions in crisis or areas, where the closest hospital may be hundreds of kilometers away.

Example 1 : SpiroSmart, your Phone turned into a Spirometer

A spirometry may be one of the tests most frequently done on asthma patients and others suffering from breathing problems, fundamentally measuring lung capacity and volume. Although portable spirometers do exist, wouldn’t it be great to be able to take these measures wherever you are with your mobile phone?

 

This is exactly what a group of researchers from Washington University enables you to do with SpiroSmart, an application which - without any additional accessories - allows you to use your smartphone in place of a spirometer. It works in a very simple way: All you need to do, is blow towards the telephone allowing it to analyze the sound frequency. The application uses the user’s windpipe and voice chords to replace the tubes in traditional spirometers.

 

Example 2: MobiUS, Pocket size Ultrasound Scanner

Numerous medical examinations are based on ultrasound scans, that create two- or three-dimensional images of what is going on inside our body (like the womb of a pregnant woman, to give you a very common example). How is it possible to realize these kinds of exams without carrying a big and heavy piece of machinery? Pocket Scanners are one possible option, but they are quite pricy. MobiUS is another possibility.

 

MobiUS, has already received approval from the american FDA to be sold on the mHEalth market. It is a accessory which you can connect to a smartphone or tablet computer and slide it over the part of the patient’s body to be analyzed. The images obtained by the ultrasound accessory appear on our smartphone screen and may be stored or shared immediately with other doctors. And the accessory works with batteries, which makes it possible to use it in areas where no electrical grid is available.

Times of Oman | News :: Is Google developing a medical device? | EMSinsider Medical Device Electronics | Scoop.it

San Francisco: Google sent employees with ties to its secretive X research group to meet United States regulators who oversee medical devices, raising the possibility of a new product that may involve biosensors from the unit that developed computerised glasses.

The meeting included at least four Google workers, some of whom have connections with Google X — and have done research on sensors, including contact lenses that help wearers monitor their biological data.

Google staff met those at the Food and Drug Administration who regulate eye devices and diagnostics for heart conditions, according to the agency's public calendar.

As technology and medicine merge to give consumers more control over their health, innovators from mobile-health application developers to DNA analysis companies have struggled to meet the demands of federal oversight.

The FDA ordered Google-backed 23andMe in November to halt sales of its personal gene test, saying it hadn't gained agency approval.

Google, expanding beyond its core search-engine business, is investing in long-term projects at its X lab that may lead to new market opportunities, including the Glass devices, driverless cars and high-altitude air balloons to provide wireless Internet access.
